Connie Britton (in Akris) and Hayden Panettiere (in Moschino) stopped by ABC Upfronts VIP Party hosted by Entertainment Weekly in New York, where they gave us clues about their characters’ style for their new country music-centric TV series, Nashville. “I got to wear the most amazing wardrobe,” Britton told “How often do you get to play a character who wears these gowns and then these cowboy boots, all in a two-week span?” Panettiere also admitted to loving the show’s wardrobe. “It’s country, baby!” she said. "It can be flashy, blingy, sweet." Catch Nashville this fall on ABC, and see more stars at last night’s hottest events in the gallery.
